New Products and Experimental Methods Database

Grants and Contracts Details


There are many instances where new products or procedures are utilized on an experimental basis throughout the state, this project would identify a mechanism to capture these items and develop a central location for dissemination of information regarding their use. In many instances, products are used at the district level and this information is not shared across the state. Products which may have performed well are sometimes lost since the information regarding the use may have not been documented outside of the local jurisdiction. Much of the information relating to the use and performance ofthese features is contained in the individual experience of Cabinet personnel. Many of these personnel have retired, or moved to other positions; therefore the information may be lost. It is anticipated that this project would complement the current Experimental Product Evaluation Program, by providing the means to monitor products approved through the program. Currently the only method of documentation regarding the performance of a product may be from the vendor and this information may be anecdotal in nature.
